 The 47 year old guy who rides a 9000$ fat bike year round will never buy a dirt jumper with the change in the center console of his X5, but he will buy a pump track bike in a second.

Because the local mountain bike club built a crappy pump track at the local trail head and a pump track bike would be perfect to ride it on. (Before it gets trashed from people riding fat bikes on it and everyone loses interest in pump tracking)
  • + 21
 this is beyond accurate in every sense
  • + 11
 I'm that guy. Minus the $9000 bike and X5 of course. Funny how the bike made sense to me. I missed the dirt jump/bmx phase of riding and too late to get on that train now.
  • + 6
 this hits a little too close to home Smile
  • + 19
 then the inevitable excuse when he cases every beginner tabletop in the DJ park of "this bike just isn't designed for dirt jumping"
  • + 13
 This bike will be perfect in the back of my fully built sprinter van
  • + 4
 @acdownhill: lmao so true!
  • + 5
 You live in Bend, Oregon? Hahaha
  • + 11
 I need 3 hardtails now for street, dj, and pumptrack,,,, 3 DH bikes with all wheel sizes,,,, 2 trail bikes,,,, my girl is going to have to sleep in the garage.
  • - 2
 I'm 46 and will never own a $9,000 fat bike because ugh. A $9,000 carbon DH bike sure. Pump track bike aka DJ bike, don't need one as I've been DJ riding since the 90's so I already have one, but nice try.
  • + 23
 Comes with a Pike DJ and not a Pike Pumptrack?
  • + 3
 truest words
  • + 3
 @rkstar: Never too late. I spend winter evenings at indoor skateparks with a vast array of ages, just so we keep riding often. Get down the skatepark lad, you'll be annoyed you didn't go sooner! (Also applies to Dirt Jumps in better weather).
  • + 2
 @rkstar: What age are you? I started up again at 36.
  • + 5
 I used the change in the center console of my Forester to buy a PBJ. Not a Transition PBJ - I mean an actual peanut butter and jelly sandwich to carry on my ride.
  • + 2
 @number44: I used the change in my pocket to get a bum to get out of the way for a street line
  • + 65
 Finally I can throw out my outdated ( 2018 ) dirt jump bike and have a bike that actually is able to be rode on a pumptrack...
  • + 7
 Can I ride enduro with this?
  • + 6
 DIRT JUMP BIKE. Stop getting crafty..
  • + 5
 But it has a Pike DJ fork so technically it’s a... “pump jumper”?
  • - 1
 @chyu: no. Enduro is made for Enduro. Just like All Mountain is all mountain. Duh
  • + 1
 @bartb: whooosh
  • + 49
 How is this different from a 26" dirt jumper?

Genuine question.
  • + 1
 a bit longer maybe?
  • + 50
 No, it's not very long.

Difference? IMO Pumptrack is hip - sells better.
  • + 53
 Dirt jumping will void the lifetime warranty
  • + 1
 a lighter build?
  • + 6
 That’s a nice looking dirt jumper
  • + 9
 Dirt jump bikes = a dying breed of riders who are the reason this bike exists

Pump track bike = tailors to any mtb rider who wants hone their skills on the pump track with the dream of maybe someday hitting a set of doubles.

There is nothing physically different about the bike compared to other dirt jump bikes in its range, rather just the labelling of its "category". Its a smart move marketing wise, coincidentally after the GMC pump track challenge just went down
  • + 10
 @BobbyLite: 2006 Marzocchi DJ1 (Dirt Jumper 1) came with a sticker on it that said exactly that. To this day, I have not seen anything register higher on the bullshit scale.
  • + 1
 "Pump track specific"
  • + 9
 IMO a true "pump track" bike shouldn't need sprocket, chain, cog or suspension fork but IMO this is ridiculous marketing scheme
  • + 2
 @nojzilla: basically a pike dj (or should it be the pt model) won't hold up to actual dirt jumping?
  • + 2
 Careful, you might upset the internet.
  • + 4
 Dirt jumper sounds scary to most riders these days.. Dirt jumps... gasp that sounds unsanctioned
  • + 0
 At first glance it solves a bunch problems past dirt jumpers. Thru axle, threaded bb, and tapered head tube. Looks like ez build from cheap obsolete 26" trail bike parts. 400mm CS though, holeee shit.
  • + 1
 @DIGorSHUTup: Dirt jumping is basically illegal. My take is the 1980's BMX generation got old, and bitter, and butthurt. The whole time growing up we spent like days building things, for them to get torn down before anyone could ride them.
  • + 1
 You can ride it without a chain.
  • + 1
 @PhoS: my dj has both a tapered head tube and threaded bb. I am happy it is bolt on in the rear still
  • + 1
 @Kramz: What? I left a comment about a dirt jump fork. How'd you extrapolate to this?

But yes, we know.
  • + 1
 @adrennan: when did I say that?
  • + 37
 Is there gonna be a Black Sabbath?
  • + 28
 Perhaps. And after a really bad crash it will be Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.
  • + 8
 I bet it will make you ride like The Wizard
  • + 14
 And good ol' steel version called the Iron Man Wink
  • + 11
 Don’t get too paranoid about that.
  • + 6
 This bike will surely send you Into the Void.
  • + 7
 @somethingwith69or13init: Yeah but at least you'll get a cool Electric Funeral.
  • + 2
 Sabbath isn't the same as black sabbath. Sabbath is a stupid name.

It means this :
a day of religious observance and abstinence from work, kept by Jews from Friday evening to Saturday evening, and by most Christians on Sunday.
  • + 22
 $750 seems a little high when i can get a transition pbj or dartmoor two6 and others for $400
  • + 7
 fully agree, this is overpriced by quite a bit.
  • + 22
 Pumptrack specific!
  • + 7
 @fracasnoxteam: great now i need a DJ and a pump track bike. i guess N+1
  • + 38
 Made in Canada vs made in Asia. Price seems reasonable considering that fact.
  • + 10
 Made in CANADA. not in a offshore factory.
  • - 7
flag seraph (Aug 16, 2018 at 9:19) (Below Threshold)
 @Dogboy88: Made in Canada doesn't mean it's automatically better than made in Taiwan or China. Remember that most of the big bike companies have offshore manufacturing facilities for their bikes regardless of retail price.
  • + 12
 @seraph: Made in CANADA is why it's more expensive, he didn't say better.
  • + 5
 A Santa Cruz Jackal costs 900 € and is probably made in Asia.
  • + 3
 @jzPV: I got a blkmrkt edit 1 made in the US of A for 600
  • + 1
 dont buy a pbj. i bent the shit out of a ten ride old brand new 2018 two weeks ago.
  • + 1
 @drunknride: @seraph: Precisely. I was speaking from a purely economic standpoint.
  • + 16
 Pump track bike? Didn't know it was already April 1st
  • + 12
 Now that Velosolution pumps tracks have begun to spread about the world and Redbull has birthed the official Pump Track World Championship series its only fitting the bike manufactures begin to market the use of the word "Pump Track Bike".....These Pump Track bicycles are not to be confused with Dirt Jump Bicycles.
  • + 11
 If it looks like a dirt jumper and feels like a dirt jumper It must be a pump track bike
  • + 9
 As usual I'll ask again why the Canadian website can't list the Canadian bike company's hot new ride in Canadian dollars? It cannot be that hard.

Looks super clean
  • + 5
 It does. 1999 CAD for the conplete and 899 CAD for the frameset. Way too much.
  • + 7
 @mollow: On the Devinci Website you are correct. I was referring to the habit that pinkbike has of constantly listing USD for most bike reviews/releases even though its a Canadian website. I can understand on some bikes from the US or other countries that might not have set canadian pricing yet because of duties, shipping, etc, but I find it hard to believe Pinkbike cannot get the Canadian pricing of the bike releases coming from Canadian companies. Both Devinici's released this week, the new Aurum, and the new rocky thunderbolt were only listed in USD.

I do understand that some of these are press releases from the companies most of the time and a lot of the web traffic likely comes from the US, but take the time while you're under the press embargo to shoot an email to get the Canadian MSRP if you're a Canadian based company, especially for Canadian products. Otherwise I can get the same info on VitalMTB
  • + 2
 @kiddlivid: ah, misunderstood you there! I 100% agree with you on that.
  • + 9
 So what makes it a "pumptrack" bike instead of a dirtjumper? Is the geometry different and set up specifically for pumptrack? Or are they just calling it that to be unique?
  • + 18
 Sales gimmick
  • + 4
 20” is the correct pump track wheel size, maybe 24” but if it is specifically a pump track bike, lose the suspension fork and try 24” or 20” otherwise call a spade a spade.
  • + 1
 Clearly the pumptracks used in the races are meant for 26" wheels as that's what all the comoetitors are using.
  • + 0
 @Rubberelli: I don’t know. We all love wheelsize debates here, but I think if you clocked a few laps on multiple sized wheels, in just about any pump track, you’d leave 26” for something smaller.
  • + 8

 @speed10: So, all these pros who are about to race pump track in a few mminutes are a bunch of idiots?
  • + 0
 @Rubberelli:. Just bc a certain pro does a certain thing doesn’t mean shit. Maybe there are regulations in place forcing them on the same wheel size. Maybe it’s a sponsor trying to push a model over another. I don’t care. I do know that I have personally ridden some of these velosolutions tracks on 26” and 20” and from personal experience, not speculation, I know what I know. Think for yourself and question everything. Do your own testing. Come back and I still won’t care what you or Devinci think.
  • + 0
 @speed10: I sure as hell am questioning you since the only bike rule is that the chain must be removed, yet everyone looks to be on 26" wheels. www.crankworx.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Rules-and-Format_Pumptrack.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwjN_Z-ZjPPcAhVvS98KHcF8CWsQFjAAegQIBBAB&usg=AOvVaw30G0RaK6IP3evPBilw923y
  • + 2
 @speed10: but they just broadcast the rules and it did say 26" is the minimum size, so you are correct that it is a rule. Im not sure why they would mandate a slower bike though.
  • + 1
 @speed10: I don't think so! I had a 24" race bmx for a couple of years and after switching to a 26" DJ bike I feel way more comfortable while ride a pumptrack.

But maybe that's just because it doesn't feel too weird when your are switching bikes (26" DJ to 27.5" Enduro).
  • + 0
 @Rubberelli: regulations aren’t about having slower bikes, it’s about leveling the field. It’s not that 26” is a dog, it’s just easiest for these bike brands to produce a 26”DJ and not an additional 24” (or whatever) pump track bike. I’m telling you, tell me to f*ck off and go grab two bikes and a stop watch.
  • + 0
 @speed10: but the BMX bike market has to be way larger than the DJ market. Aren't most of the top riders BMX pros already?
  • + 0
 @Rubberelli: who sets the rules, the riders or the event organizer? Does Devinci want you stoked on their mtbs or their non existent bmx line? Crankworkx is hosted by mtb brands not bmx brands.
  • + 3
 @Rubberelli: fun fact; at the Nanaimo Red Bull Pump Track world championship, in both the mens and womens finals, it was a head to head race between an MTB and a BMX and both times the BMX won
  • + 4
 My cheap-as-chips 24" BMX cruiser would pump more due to longer chainstays. The longer the chainstays, the more pump while manualling. And suspension? What for? This is just marketing BS. Looks good though.
  • + 6
 While it may be a marketing move to release a DJ bike named As pumptrack specific, I wouldn’t go as far to say that suspension fork is unnecessary. When you get to the point when you start learning to clear doubles, error margin is welcome. Yes there is a school of thought where you should harden the fk up. But While it may be one of the most successful schools, it has a high injury rate. Not everyone can afford injuries. And on another note, if you have background in BMX it may seem childish to ride pumptrack but if you don’t... you better treat those rollers with a good dosage of respect. Especially on asphalt tracks.
  • + 2
 Nice looking DJ bike. But i will stick with my DMR - those guys have been building them since back in the day and that counts for something in my book. Glad to see a resurgence in pump tracks and skills areas as any one who took up riding in the last 10 years will have missed this last time around.
  • + 6
 Pump tracks: because ungroomed things are scary.
  • + 3
 So Devinci has officially become the Porsche of mountain bike companies. Next they'll offer the Sabbath R, remove the chain and gears and charge $200 more for it.
  • + 3
 Why.... Literally has the same geometry as every DJ frame these days. Canyon if you're listening, hurry up and bring the stitched 360 & 720 stateside.
  • + 3
 eh, my stock frames are 14.7 CS (an inch shorter than this Devinci... or any other frame), have a lower BB than the Devinci and mine have longer reach lengths with the same or shorter wheelbases.

 @divinci Great name. No pedaling = no work on Sabbath. "I don't f*cking roll on shabbos!"

 Build Kits - $1,669 USD, I got my enduro bike for 2100€, Sweep RC HLR, 02 RLX back 160/160 travel, with full XT drivetrain and brakes
  • + 6
 But it's gotta chain?
  • + 1
 I was gonna say maybe it's got some 4X geometry to it like my Nukeproof Snap - lower BB, longer chain stays and a slacker head angle? Head angle looks to be DJ steep on this one though...

 Definitely a possible 4Cross frame. Even compatible for a derailleur.

 Keeps 26 inch wheels alive.

 Are the tires the same size front and rear? Wouldnt it make sense to use smaller ones on the rear? The DTH exists in 2.15 after all

 Devinci gone jewish? What about the origin of that Name? Why taking the jewish day of rest theme?
  • + 1
 can't wait for the devinci iron maiden dirt-jump bike and the devinci metallica dual-slalom bikes!
  • + 1
 That looks like a lot of fun. Wouldn't mind a bike like that to go pump tracking again.
  • + 2
 surprised nobody is bitching is doesn't have water bottle mounts
  • + 2
 yea okay maybe if it was 800 CAD for a complete... what a rip...
  • + 1
 400mm chainstays. Awesome. Another huge reason i love 26" wheels. Id love to have a rip on one of these
  • + 1
 Most dirt jumpers have at least 1/2" shorter though
  • + 1
 If someone wonders, that is a playful bike. Long low and slack DH bike with 26" wheels is not playful. Sorry.
  • + 4
 Additionally, did a drunken blind guy weld that thing?
  • + 5
 @richierocket Thank you! I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought this!
  • + 2
 @richierocket: he was stone cold sober and he did an amazing job, considering he held the torch using only his butt cheeks

 Cool DJ bike

 @devinci just drop the damn Spartan 29er !!!! Please!!!!
  • + 1
 After crankworx apparently
  • + 1
 OH so it doesn't come with a chain! awww that's what makes it a Pumptrack bike Smile
  • + 1
 Can't you just get some NS bike for quite a lot cheaper?
Or practically any other brand for that matter.
  • + 2
 when is it available?
  • + 1
 I'm curious of this as well.
  • + 1
 Is it dirt jump safe? No option to run a derailleur? Looks good though!

 Everyones used DJ bike just went up a couple hundred in price.

 DAMN DANIEL

 26 ain't dead!

 Banshee Amp?

 Looks quality

 Long low slack 26 dh bike is still more playful than a monster truck 29er dh bike. Sorry.

 Which 29er have you ridden then...

 Word Cup bikes aren't supposed to be fun. They're supposed to be fast.
  • + 1
 @strasznyzbigniew: and are those 29ers faster?
  • + 1
 @headshot: Depends where. Not out of the gate due to higher rotational mass.
  • + 1
 @DarrellW: not alotmof races are won at the starting gate...
  • + 1
 @Jeroc454: Every race is won at the finish line...

 @DarrellW: and the fastest rider on that day wins.
@headshot: scale of playfulness 0-100,
street BMX 99pts
Dj bike 90pts
DH 26er 10pts
DH 29er 9pts

You are right DH26er is more playful.
